Understanding Scoliosis of the Spine & the Natural Benefits of Chiropractic Care


Are you or someone you know suffering from Scoliosis of the spine? You’re not alone; according to Columbia University Irving Medical Center, Scoliosis affects 2% to 3% of the United States’ population, or an estimated 6 million to 9 million people. (Vitale, 2021)

Scoliosis, which can be hereditary or developmental, is a spinal condition that causes an abnormal sideways curvature of the spine. Instead of aligning straight down the middle of the back, the spine may curve to the left or right, resembling an S or C shape. This curvature can range from mild to severe and may cause the spine to rotate or twist, leading to back and muscle pain.

Although it most commonly affects children, and is 4:1 more common in females than males; Scoliosis can affect individuals of all ages. The KEY is early detection and treatment before its too late. It’s estimated that 30,000 children are fitted with braces, and more than 38,000 patients undergo spinal fusion surgery each year. (Surgeons, 2007)

While Scoliosis can become an issue at any age, it most commonly emerges during a child’s growth spurt just before puberty.

At ASFCA, we help individuals get a proper diagnosis help patient with scoliosis better understand their condition and its variations and treatment. The Scoliosis treatments we provide at every one of our Top-Rated Clinics offer patients relief as we naturally work to improve or correct the curvature of the spine through specific chiropractic adjustments, rehabilitative exercise, potentially soft braces and physiotherapy.


Scoliosis Comes in Many Different Forms

Scoliosis can affect the curvature of the spine at various stages of life, including early childhood, adolescence and later into adulthood. Our team of chiropractors and pediatric specialists are ready to help you today.

Below are some of the most common forms of spinal Scoliosis that we diagnose and treat at our clinics.


Most Common Types of Scoliosis We Treat Naturally at ASFCA:

  • Idiopathic Scoliosis: This is the most common form of Scoliosis and typically develops during childhood. Idiopathic is a diagnosis that means that we don’t completely know the full cause. Our team of chiropractors are excellent in treating this type of Scoliosis which often can be linked to a past injury that misaligned the pelvis, hips, spine and neck and causes a compensation to balance out the body.

  • Congenital Scoliosis: This type of scoliosis affects a child at birth and is caused by abnormalities in the formation of spine and its vertebrae during the babies development.

  • Neuromuscular Scoliosis: This condition is caused by muscle spasms, weakness and even paralysis and is caused by other conditions such as a pinched nerve, disc herniation, or more severe conditions such as muscular dystrophy or cerebral palsy.

  • Degenerative Scoliosis: This form of Scoliosis is most common in older adults. Degenerative scoliosis develops due to changes in the spine’s structure as we age and degeneration and arthritis occur. Conditions like disc degeneration or osteoporosis play a role in this diagnosis.

By understanding the different types of scoliosis and the healing power of chiropractic care, individuals can make informed decisions about their care and take proactive steps towards improving their spinal health naturally.
